In my fleet of Traxxas RC's the E Revo was always my favorite, but I've been really attached to my E maxx lately . I love the way it handles with wider offset wheels and soft springs. Rarely flips over when turning! So, to express my love for this truck I treated it to a new body and ESC motor combo. Painted a new ford f650
body with custom headlight buckets front and rear. A red sharpie was used on the rear lights to keep them red and clear. I took out the Hobbywing combo and installed it on my sons E Revo . Took a spare MM that I had as a back up and waterproofed it with Liqud tape. I added a quick connect plug to the fan on MM so that I can disable the fan if I feel brave enough to drive it in water, lol!

Headlight turned out really nice!
Carbon was easy to use and added nice small touches here and there.
Seeking help with my TQI remote. I bought the 4 channel TQI to use the extra channels to control the lights on the new body.
I took wiring from an old servo, connected it to my lights (red/black wire) and plugged it into receiver . Didn't connect the white
wire on the servo wiring to anything . Turned on the truck and tried to operate lights with switch but nothing happens. The lights
stay on. Is there something additional that needs to be done ? I've seen vids on YouTube of people doing this. Thank you in
I just picked that body yesterday, and a raptor body too. It looks great, like the hid's btw.

As always...like your work bro!
Rock n Rolla !
Cool truck dude
Wow, the forum won't allow me to post the brand of the controller . Wow! Is it that serious ?
You no longer riding the eRevo bro? I have been thinking about building myself an eMaxx as I do like the look of the truck and how it handles...that paint job with the carbon fiber looks awesome .
Rock n Rolla !
Ordered a horn with the General Lee sound, from Dukes of hazard. Should have it all hooked up before the weekend

Nice looking truck revo, Dont blame you for not wanting to trash the body after all that work. I keep one nice one for show too. Keep up the nice work!
Guess i should try again then!
Rainy day here in Maryland, so I took the maxx out to play, along with my son's E Revo with the Hobbywing waterproof combo.
Didn't see any smoke from my ESC's which is a good thing, lol! I really took my time with the liquid tape on my mamba monster. I added a quick connect plug to the ESC's fan. I felt like this was important if I am ever brave enough to drive my truck through high water . The talons really performed well on the wet asphalt. Great all around tire!
I have a question about these products that I found online :
Has anyone tried the bullet proof front and rear bullhead / diff combo? I don't have any diff problems yet, but had lots in my E Revo . Switched the diiffs in my Revo to LST2, and had no problems since then.
Any info on this would be great!
I've been having some trouble with my maxx jumping. Bottom slaps the ground every time, on small jumps. Changed shocks to big bore and stiff shocks, but problem was still there. Added these trencher tires, which gave truck more ground clearance. Problem solved! Does not handle as well on turns, but jumps really well now
Nice to see you back. The rig is looking good mate. Nice work.
Always get a 2nd Opinion!
Revo, I have a couple sets of those flm ultimate hybrid bulks. There nice parts. They use a 1/8th scale diff. like the losi diff. Only in one unit and you don't have to mod anything to fit or have your diff wobbling around inside the bulks. . 2 thumbs up IMO.
Hybrid bulks are bulletproof, I have them on my emaxx, also got the al diff cup.
Rc fan, Are those combo bulks or hybrid bulks with stock diffs?
Revo, Nice clan! I think the hybrids allow you to use either stock or 1/8th scale diffs. I would go for the 1/8th scale diffs.

In a serious mood to paint bodies this month. I think I found the last HPI jeep wrangler body on the planet, lol! That thing was hard to find. Decided to use this for my bashing this summer. Did something special with the headlight and taillights. Kicking myself for not taking more pics during the process.
I masked off the headlights and taillights using the headlight decals .
Masked off a long strip in the rear to simulate an led center brake light.
I wanted black headlights , so I made my own headlight buckets by using caps from quick squeeze water bottles. Painted them black, and used chrome led holders to give it that projector headlight look.
Used a red led strip to supply the lights in the middle (can be found at Auto Zone ), and bottle cap buckets in the rear.
Not finished applying the decals yet, but so far so good! It's a shame, because I am going to beat the **** out of it. Lol!!!
Video coming soon .

Nice paint job, that body looks awesome. You should dye the chassis, it will make it look even better.

That is one sweet looking jeep! Nice job. I would have a hard time scratching that thing up. lol But not much fun on the shelf.
The new proline Desert Malitia for my son, and two proline Slipstream bodies for my E Revo . Lots of painting to do this week
That is very cool! I like how clean you have it
About to drag race for pink slips, lol!!
